The Liturgy Office promotes the vision of the Second Vatican Council, from the Constitution of the Sacred Liturgy, under the guidance of the Bishop of the Diocese.  The Liturgy Office:

  • promotes full, conscious and active participation of the laity
  • provides formation opportunities
  • assists in the ongoing development of the liturgical life of parishes through support, direction and leadership.

Attention Composers
of Catholic Worship Music!

The National Liturgy Office has announced that the process
for publishing a National Hymnal has begun. 
The Hymnal Committee will be considering “new” music, Psalm settings and Mass settings for the new hymnal.  

For details, see the blog post
by our Director of Liturgy,  Fr. Conrad Edwards
